Working Groups

OIE permanent Working Groups are responsible for continuingly reviewing developments in their fields, and for keeping OIE Members informed of current issues.

Two Working Groups are currently operating:

Working Group on Wildlife

Founded in 1994, this Wildlife Working Group informs and advises the OIE on all health problems relating to wild animals, whether in the wild or in captivity. It has prepared recommendations and oversees numerous scientific publications on the surveillance and control of the most important specific wildlife diseases. The Working Group comprises world-leading scientific experts in their subject areas.

Working Group on Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR)

Following the adoption of Resolution no. 14 “OIE’s engagement in the One Health Global Effort to Control Antimicrobial Resistance” by the World Assembly of OIE Delegates in May 2019, a Working Group on Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR) was established to support the implementation of the OIE Strategy on Antimicrobial Resistance and the Prudent Use of Antimicrobials and the organisation’s capacity to respond to global challenges according to its mandate.

_____________________________________________________________________________________________


Two Working Groups achieved their remit; therefore their mandate was not renewed in 2017 (per resolutions 32 and 33 from the 85th General Session):

Working Group on Animal Welfare

A Working Group on Animal Welfare was established in 2002 to coordinate and manage the animal welfare activities of the OIE. Animal welfare activities are now well integrated in the work of the OIE through the Global Animal Welfare Strategy adopted in May 2017.

Reports of the past Animal Welfare Working Group are available on the OIE website.

Working Group on Food Safety

A Working Group on Food Safety was established in 2002 to coordinate and manage the animal production food safety activities of the OIE. Animal production food safety topics are now well integrated in the work of the OIE. The OIE and Codex continue to collaborate closely in the development of their respective standards relevant to the whole food production continuum.

Reports of the past Working Group on Food Safety are available on the OIE website
